Strange animal names
Wunderpus photogenicus: Yep, you heard right. Try stating that with no circus announcer's voice. Really, the spots of the rare octopus species (pictured above and below) are unique to every animal, meaning photos help scientists identify people. But nonetheless ... Wuuuuunderpuuus phoootogennnicusssssss!
****Spiny lumpsucker: Along with a lumpy-searching sucker it's. The lumpsucker uses modified pelvic fins which have developed into adhesive dvds to stay itself onto a surface just like a rock, or because the second photo below, onto fingers.

Tasseled wobbegong: Need we are saying more? Well maybe this: it is a types of carpet shark. (Not too as being a carpet shark helps matters much...)
Hellbender: Nothing states fierce that can compare with a huge slippery salamander, right? Well, maybe less. This is exactly why it requires a title like "Hellbender."
Chicken turtle: Serious, it is because that's the way it tastes.
Star-nosed mole: An operating title, to be certain, in line with the form of the schnoz. But nonetheless.
Blobfish: Yep. Blobfish. Zero points for creativeness on that one but, well, it is a seafood and it is a blob so why wouldn't you.

Goblin shark: Because goblins.
Hummingbird hawk-moth: Several kinds of bird species use to naming this moth species.
Leafy seadragon: A dragon that appears just like a leafy branch and lives underneath the ocean. Why don't you?
